Waterside Walks in Hampshire

Waterside Walks in Hampshire

by: Nick Battle and Peter Carne
Water always adds interest to a walk in the country and Hampshire is particularly fortunate in having so many wonderful rivers to explore. There are the great rivers - the Test and the Itchen; the smaller rivers such as the Meon, the Hamble, the Beaulieu and the Avon. In addition, there are those which are little but just as attractive such as the Wey, the Dever and the Wallington. If this was not sufficient there is also the magnificent Solent coastline to explore, plus minor waterways like the Basingstoke Canal.

All the above feature in this book of classic Hampshire walks. There are twenty simple, circular routes covering the whole of the county and all between 2 and 5 miles in length exploring some of the most beautiful scenery in Hampshire. Each walk is carefully described and is accompanied by a sketch map of the route. There are also practical details on how to get to the start, where to park and where to get refreshment. Many of the walks are based on a good local pub; others have pubs close to the start. There are numerous colour photographs of places visited on the walks including some of the pubs.
